I was looking but didn't see it. Did Robert Bloch get cited in the credits?

Yes. I thought I saw that flash on the screen.
During the closing credits.

Cool. Nice to see him get some recognition. It always bothers me when articles about PSYCHO (and this new show) don't even bother to mention Bloch, often implying that the Hitchcock movie invented Norman Bates out of thin air . . .

No, it didn't suck. One of my new favorites, in fact. Thanks, Guy; for posting the OP. I might have missed this one, otherwise.

Congratulations to Universal/A&E for putting a winner together. Both Bloch/Hitchcock would be pleased.

Cheers.

Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

HOLY MOLY! Did that second episode pick up or what? Christ on a cracker, Norman is a sick little puppy. I can appreciate him not wanting Dylan to call Norma a whore, but to actually take a meat tenderizer to the back of his head--or try to--the kid is off his nut, just like mommy.

Can you say "zero" personal space between them sitting on the bed after she showed him her lace teddy whilst changing shirts? Of course, as sick as the town is, Norman and Norma may blend in nicely. Criminy.

Who's that actor playing Dylan? I know I've seen him. Love, love, LOVE the addition of the character (I thought I'd hate an added brother) but did TPTB have to name him Dylan? It's such a generic Tiger Beat teen dream name and the character is anything but. I wonder if his father will ever show up.

It's an interesting show. There are some parts which are too goofy, anything with teenagers other than Norman, but Vera Farmiga is phenomenal.

Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

Really? I interpreted it as just the opposite. Norma wouldn't let him go out with Bradley, but she didn't mind letting him go out with the "competition" who at most will live to be 27.

So the deep fried hanging dude at the end....this was the town taking care of the perpetrator who set fire to Bradley's father's warehouse "in its own way"? Like I said, Norma and little Norma may fit in quite nicely. I hope Norma isn't the one who set fire to Bradley's father's warehouse to keep his pretty daughter occupied and away from the hotel. She didn't look too shocked. Gosh.....that's terrible. The woman is weird.

Re: Bates Motel seemed like it's going 2 suck, & then it didn't.(Spoil

I was reaching thinking about children, but calculate what's going to happen to Norman's heart if he falls in love with a girl who is going to die so young, with such a basement level quality life through out?

It's pragmatically mercenary to transfer tragedy, but usually a parent wants to guide their child away from obvious painful experiences like licking light switches, or falling for a dead girl.

Maybe there's Münchhausen by Proxy at work and Norma is ecstatic at the thought of picking up the pieces after this girl dies, but then it's not like she has to wait for natural causes if she gets off on consoling her tearful son?

I love the craziness of the series. It's a nice surprising show. I love the town which is not unlike Twin Peaks.

Everyone sold Dope in Twin Peaks too?

Well, that explains the Log Lady.

Norma is seriously fucked up in the head. Looks like she fits perfectly in this town. So people take justice in their own hands and the cops are cool with it?

I like how Dylan said, "I told you not to do that!" when Norman swung at the back of his head with the meat tenderizer. How many times has Norman swung at the back of Dylan's head with a blunt object?

^Wait for Norman to figure out that a shovel will give him more leverage on his swing.

Just saw episode two and wasn't disappointed.

Freddie Highmore is freaking channeling Anthony Perkins. Love that the town is just as sick as the Bates, thier gonna fit right in. However, I thought I sensed Norma's confidence cracking a bit at the sight of burning man.

Sure it wasn't envy?

I'm guessing that eventually Norman will succeed and smash his brother's head in. I know I'm waiting for that.
